Photos: The world’s smallest chameleon can sit on the head of a match
A new kind of chameleon, believed to be the smallest in the world, was discovered on the island of Madagascar on Wednesday. The “Brookesia micra,” discovered by German and American biologists, has a body only 16 millimetres long, or 23 mm with its tail fully extended. It’s so small that it’s only about twice as long as a the head of a match. (Photos: Zoologische Staatssammlung Muenchen/Joern Koehler/Reuters)
